    Sharpening chainsaw

    I've been thinking about trying these for a wile now. Guess the only thing holding me back is I'll need one for each chain since they're all different pitch so I'd need 3 of them.... and maybe a 4'th soon. I've got about a dozen dull ones now so it's probably a good time to work them over and get some more use out of them one way or another. Have only heard good things about these.

    Praying mantis have hatched

    They sure look cute and cuddly now, but in just a few short months they'll be biting the heads off their mates after knockin' the Mantis boots,lol

    Slayed the dragon..

    ANYTHING with no soft, dry rot spots! Pine and hemlock carve like butter. Maple seems to take the detais the best, and I just LOVE the color I get from a piece of cherry like this one, but it's hard on both me and the saws. I just got a load of poplar and couldn't believe how hard that stuff is too. Unfortunately it's a very wet wood that retains a lot of water and needs to be dried for some time before the finish is applied or the varnish turns very cloudy. Learned that the hard way. Should have some red oak and cottonwood to play around with soon as well but haven't worked with any of that yet.

    Slayed the dragon..

    Trust me, I probably have the smallest head of any carvers I know,lol The flaws in this one jump right out at me just like every other hunk of wood I ever took a saw to!

    Slayed the dragon..

    My neighbor brought me this big ol' cherry log a few weeks ago so I got to sawing on it the other day and finished up this afternoon. My plan started with a simple drawing of a dragon that lives in my head and it worked out pretty sweet on the wood too!

    Tractor supply chicken...

    I've just been posting them to my FB art page and yard sale pages and sell whatever I can. I get a lot of new customers through word of mouth, just from a few folks who've already bought from me and show their friends. A handful of repeat customers too. Also just donated my first one to a local animal rescue facility for auction or raffle with all proceeds going to the shelter. Paula also helps me sell,lol I still don't take special orders, and make whatever I feel like making. Sometimes I have to hang on to some stuff for a while, but at least I'm not forced to work on something I don't feel like.
  11. Found this little rooster at Tractor supply and figured I'd give it a shot. I might go back for the elephant and a few others,lol

    New eagle WIP

    Just need to pick up some varnish tomorrow to wrap this one up.
  13. The past 4 or 5 years since sis got her license I've been hunting with her most of the time. I think I take more chances and am more aggressive when I hunt alone. Less fear of blowing my own hunt and going home birdless. When I hunt with sis the last thing I want to do is something that could jeopardize her connecting, so we try to avoid any fancy stuff and just take whatever comes to us.

    Thanks guys! Here's a little more progress before getting rained out again. Should be pretty close to done next time the sun shines.

    New eagle WIP

    Did the fish thing on one of my other eagles, so I've kinda been leaning towards having him on a skull... or holding a skull... or a pile of skulls,lol. I got a weird thing for skulls lately.
